Buehler Auto Polisher

The BuehlerVanguardTM 2000 autopolisher is a fully automated grinding/polishing system that can prepare metallographic samples for microstructural analysis from start to finish without continuous operator involvement.  Some of the autopolisher’s features include: an easy to use interface, dispensing system, multiple platens, and ultrasonic cleaner.  The autopolisher makes preparing many samples for use in the SEM or on the optical microscope simple and fast.  The autopolisher is most helpful during the large stereology “pushes” when many samples need to be prepared and analyzed in a short amount of time.

Ancillary Equipment:

The Simplimet 1000 Automatic Mounting Press, made by Buehler Inc., is an easy to use automatic mounting press.  Up to two 1.25” metallographic mounts can be prepared at a time in any desired tradition thermo set mounting medium.
